An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is the debut novel by Hank Green.

It’s an odd plot.

April May, a young queer woman, is launched into internet celebrity when she and her friend Andy post a silly video on the arrival of a mysterious sculpture in the heart of Manhattan.

As these statues pop up in dozens of major global cities, their video goes viral.

Are they art? Space aliens?

For some reason April is essential to the mystery.

The story deals with how she handles sudden celebrity.

It’s a parable too of Trump populism vs intelligence.

I enjoyed the book. It kept me going. 

The sequel, titled A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor, will be published July 7, 2020.

Hank Green is a YouTuber and podcaster with a combined 2 billion plus views.

Writing a book was a side project.
